To max out performance in the final days of DDR3 technology, you needed the right processor, the right motherboard, a PhD in overclocking, and the willingness to surrender everything in your wallet. Not anymore.
Crucial Ballistix Elite DDR4 memory cracks the DDR3 performance limit and debuts at 2666 MT/s – and that’s just getting started. Feed your 8-cores and draw upon some of the fastest speeds and bandwidths available.
While your opponents fight petty using DDR3-1600 MT/s, obliterate them with DDR4-2666 MT/s speeds that get even faster as the technology matures. Alongside these speed gains, draw on the improved responsiveness, increased frame rates, and optimized latencies of Ballistix Elite DDR4 technology and revel in an unreal gaming experience.
Flood your memory bandwidth and process up to 21.3 gigabytes per second – a feat that’s nearly impossible to achieve with DDR3 memory. Leveraging the faster burst access speeds that are only possible on DDR4 architecture, Ballistix Elite DDR4 maximizes performance with four channel memory.
Ballistix Elite DDR4 memory leverages the latest advancements in efficiency technology and is engineered to run at lower voltages for inherent energy gains. Armed with a thermal sensor and our high-end Ballistix M.O.D. utility for real-time temperature monitoring, Ballistix Elite DDR4 wrings up to 40% more power efficiency out of your memory.
Give your rig a next-gen facelift with a menacing black anodized heat spreader and complementary black PCB that bodes well for any color scheme. Optimized for the latest Intel® X99 boards with support for XMP 2.0 profiles, Ballistix Elite DDR4 module set up is easy: just lock and load your BIOS and get ready to win.

I've been using this 32GB memory upgrade in an Asus X99-E WS USB3.1 motherboard with an i7-6900K processor for about 8 months now and have had no trouble.
I have run memtest86 for a full 48 hours without seeing any errors and I don't have any problems with the machine crashing so I conclude that the memory is fairly reliable. It configures to the 2400MHz speed profile by default (with the current v3402 motherboard BIOS) but it's a simple BIOS setting change to get it to use the faster XMP 2666MHz profile. I didn't have to faff around manually setting any timing parameters or the base clock frequency.
These memory modules aren't low profile but nor are they ridiculously tall. I can't remember how high they actually are (I wish Crucial would put this information on their web site) but they had no trouble fitting under my Noctua NH-D15S CPU cooler. This heatsink has a cut-out in the fins on one side where it overhangs the RAM. Some other coolers may not have enough clearance for this RAM.
